Here are my suggestions
For better understanding:
A - Class Buffs (This include Bard songs, Paladin Auras, Barbarian Rage etc. No spells. This includes all other character class buffs as well, not just your own class buffs)
B - Elemental Resistances (I realize these can be put under the Arcane or Divine buffs tab, but I figured it's best if they were mixed, since there's 2 types of ele resistances)
C - Arcane Buffs
D - Divine Buffs
E - Guild Airship Buffs
My suggestions basically work like this:
-You have Icons representing each type of buff (from above)
- Each icon has a timer, the timer is the remaining time on the buff that will expire first*
- You can click to toggle each timer and browse the buffs as you like, you can either have all buffs toggled or none.
(Edit)- You can move the buff icons to put them where you want them
- As both of my UI suggestions (See sig), this is OPTIONAL, you are NOT forced to have this type of bar if you don't want to. (This would be added to the UI settings part)
This type of buff bar focus on a simple vertical view of the buffs, so you can have several types of buffs displayed if wanted.
This bar has a horizontal view of the buffs, so you trade off a shorter way to view the buffs but only one bar will be available to see (Or you could mix them by toggling the other buff windows as well)
Thanks for reading, hope you like my suggestion
